the first explosion two men are seen walking toward the finish line carrying large knapsacks, tamerlan tsarnaev is in front and dzhokhar tsarnaev is a few feet behind. the two are seen a half block away from a restaurant camera. a minute later, bomber one, tamerlan walks out of the crowd with a knapsack on his back. at 2:45, alleged bomber two, dzhokhar walks to the finish line. he has a cell phone in his left hand. the affidavit says he stops near a metal barrier his back to the cameras and he is apparently slipping his knapsack on the ground. he stands there for four minutes, looking at his cell phone appearing to take a picture and a deadly final 30 seconds. just before the first explosion, dzhokhar tsarnaev lifts the phone to his ear as if speaking on it. for 18 seconds he keeps the phone to his ear. as he appears to finish his call the crowd reacts to the first explosion. virtually every head turns toward the blast except for tsarnaev who virtually alone among the individuals appears calm. he glances to the east and starts walking rapidly to the west away from the finish line with
videos online. in the last thing we know is that his older brother tamerlan, the suspect who died a few days after the attacks, was the driving force behind them, isha. >> you touched on his difficulty in speaking. what do we know of how these questioning sessions are actually being carried out? how is he communicating? >> a lot of the questions have been yes or no questions basically, and what we have read from the transcript from that hearing earlier today was that he nodded eded affirmatively is the judge there put it in the hearing. >> do investigators feel that they're any closer, and mentally, these are preliminary questions, do they feel they're any closer to establishing a motive for the attacks? >> not necessarily, but from what they've been able to gather, the older brother, tamerlan, who has died evidently felt like islam was under attack and a jihadist basically needed to fight back. and that is what they believe is the force behind it. >> in all of this, now, we're hearing that dzhokhar, according to the transcripts is saying that his brother was the leader in all of this,
government had asked the united states to investigate the deceased brother, tamerlan tsarnaev back in 2001 and the fbi did, in fact, interview the family and him and look into his background. peter doocy is following that story in washington. what did the fbi do back then? >> heather, the fbi says they spoke to suspect number two, tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago at the request of a foreign government who thought he might have possible extremist ties. the fbi combed through databases looking at phone calls, internet activity, travel history, known associates. they also say they did interview tamerlan and some family members, although at this point we don't know which ones and after all that, they found nothing. at the beginning of 2011, he was clean. no evidence of terror activity, foreign or domestic. so case closed. although the fbi did tell this foreign government who reached out that if any further concerns came up, check back in and they would circle back with this amateur boxer in boston. but this foreign government never did check back in. although we have interesting information to
to the bottom of the whole plot. >> the fbi questioned the other suspect tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago, after a trip to his homeland. so did they miss an opportunity to stop him? we are live in dagestan with the details there. and today we remember the victims as one family prepares to lay their daughter to rest. this morning we're talking to massachusetts attorney general martha coakley about the case, and what the suspect is and is not telling them. plus, police commissioner ed davis joins us with the latest on the investigation. and congressman patrick meehan of the homeland security committee with what the fbi knew prior to the bombings. it is monday, april 22nd, this special edition of "starting point," from boston, begins right now. so after a week like the city and this nation has ever seen, the country and the city picking itself up, dusting itself off this morning. we've seen some amazing sights around the city, even today, that we have not seen yet. the buses here in boston, those famous "t" buses that have a special message on the front of them right now. you can see it right there
federal charges that he and his older brother tamerlan planted pressure cooker bombs near the finish line for the boston marathon. tamerlan later died after a shootout with police. in providence, rhode island, lawyers for tamerlan tsarnaev's wife catherine said she had been unaware of the bombing plot. >> the reports of involvement by her husband and brother-in-law came as an absolute shock to them all. as a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, katie deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims, students, law enforcement officers, families and our community. in the aftermath of this tragedy she, her daughter and her family are trying to come to terms with this event. >> woodruff: meanwhile, both the "washington post" and the "new york times" have reported that the younger tsarnaev admitted his role in the attack. the "post" also reported he told investigators that u.s. involvement in the iraq and afghanistan wars were motivating factors. other accounts said there appeared to be no links to larger terrorist groups. in russia today, their mother said f.b.i. agents talked to her abou
that they were going to attack other individuals. >> his older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was killed on friday in a gun battle with police. two years ago he was questioned by the fbi over concerns he may have had ties to armed groups. >> they had information from a foreign intelligence service that they were concerned about his possible radicalization. >> it's not clear when dzhokhar tsarnaev might be charged. the boston marathon bombings killed three people and wounded 180. he is also suspected of killing a police officer and injuring another. among the federal charges he could face is use of a weapon of mass destruction. if convicted, he could face the death penalty. the crimes were committed in the state of massachusetts, where capital punishment has been abolished. yet another competition in this case. some republican lawmakers also say that he should be declared an enemy combatant, and the case moved to a military tribunal at guantanamo bay, cuba. >> he is an american citizen. he's responsible for a crime here in america. but i trust the attorney general to make that call and make it wise
if theye caught or killed. i think if you look at tamerlan, the older brother, throwing a bomb and charging at a heavily armed group of police in a fire fight, he was not afraid to die and that that may have been actually part of his plan in that moment. so i think you're dealing with someone who's very dangerous. >> rose: we continue with the conversation with two people who are experts on the digital revolution. they are walt mossberg and kara swisher. >> everything is moving in mobile. if you ask compaes lean social network, e-commerce companies, many of them appeared at the conference. the percentage of people doing their readings, transactions, checking with their friends on mobile versus p.c.s or macs is just soaring and i think that's the fundamental underlying headline of everything. >> if you don't have a mobile strategy, a co-hent mobile strategy that makes money you're in trouble. so facebook ran into trouble because people felt they didn't have a mobile strategy then you saw this incredibly aggssive efrt to ueilome, which is their new mobile phone software which i happen to have
of tamerlan tsarnaev be caught alive? >> well, is important. there is still some months that we don't know about this. is there a firm international connection? with a self radicalized? what motivated them? are there more potential terrorist attacks in the future? other part of the sleeper so? is the picture gets more clear new information makes a blurry, and there is just so much that we need to know. getting a hold of him and the freaking get informational tell us a lot. dagen: of course we mentioned the city has been on virtual lock down the public transition down. all of your major ones. so closed for today. amtrak service was closed down. people told by the governor of the state to stay indoors. boston and the surrounding areas. how critical is that? how critical is it that for these authorities to be a will to do their job? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. another suspect is armed. may even have a suicide vest on. they have additional explosives. unfortunately, civili
to a boston transit cop and the death of tamerlan tsarnaev, the brother. it all ended in a backyard on friday evening. the infrared images from a police helicopter showed dzhokhar hiding in a boat. he was covered with blood. they managed to capture him alive where he is now in the hospital and still, one week later, carl, more questions than answers. back to you. >> scott, any word on timing regarding federal or state charges today? >> we expect there will be federal charges, carl and they could happen any time now. there was thinking it could happen yesterday, but now it looks like it will be some time today and it is interesting they are taking their time in putting together this complaint. it suggests that what we're going to see is a fairly detailed complaint and we understand that it will include some -- at least a description of some of the video that they have allegedly of dzhokhar placing the backpack with the bomb at the site of the second explosion at the boston marathon. >> we'll keep an eye out for that, scott, 2:50 p.m. today, a moment of silence across the state. scott, thank yo
that they have, homemade explosives. and then at some point during this fire fight the older brother, tamerlan, throws a giant device, a bag, a satchel which apparently we are told contains another one of these pressure cooker bombs just like in the boston marathon and that explodes. but it doesn't explode in the way it's intended. the top comes off when he throws it so the explosive doesn't have the pressure built up that it would be if it was airtight and that's probably the only reason that more police officers weren't killed or maimed or injured there. but he dies in a a hail of bullets and that explosion. in the confusion-- and this may have been part of the plan, i'll rush the police, throw the bomb, you get away-- his brother jumps back in the carjacked vehicle and speeds off, actually backing over his older brother's body in the getaway. goes about five blocks, jumps out of the car. they have set up a perimeter in that area already and they start to tighten up that perimeter thinking if we've got him boxed in we'll search house to house. but many hours later they still haven't found hi
question about the individuals that tamerlan, the older brother, may have met up with there in russia when he went there tore about six months. right now, investigators aren't finding any leads locally of an additional cell member or that sort of thing. >> and you've said one of the yoens why there was involvement beyond these two individuals is because they knew in advance which way cameras would be pointing at the boston marathon, something a more sophisticated group would look for as opposed to right wing domestic terrorists. >> absolutely. actually, all the discussion about the lone wolf terrorism aspect of this, we haven't seen that kind of media amplification in the past rau regarding lone wolf terrorist attacks. that is what leads authorities to believe there may be some additional strategic or operational guidance provided from the outside. if they did all this on their own, entirely on their own, it certainly indicates they did a lot of homework and a lot of pla planning before they made this attack. >> the extent to which there is any al qaeda presence here is going to be one of
